I think i have a prototype Lemon Peel Baseball

It has the stitching like a Figure eight, but yet it doesnt at the same .

Has anyone heard of things like this?

according to keymancollectibles :


The Lemon Peel was used from 1850 - 1860

The Figure Eight ball was used prior to 1850, and after 1860

In 1849 ( or so ) is it possible they started making prototypes of the Lemon Peel?

also has anyone come across a picture of a pre- 1850 Figure eight ball? ( a picture). If so, it would be greatly appreciated

one more thing.. does anyone know why my threads keep getting deleted?
